The AMETEK Brookfield CT3 Texture Analyzer is a powerful universal testing machine that offers both compression and tensile testing at a much lower price than other testers in its class. 

The CT3 can calculate, through compression and tensile data, physical properties that have proven to be highly correlated to human sensory evaluation of food and other consumer products. With six built-in test modes and ten memory slots for operator-protected tests with administrator rights, a wide choice of accessories and an optional software package, the CT3 is perfect for most any physical testing requirements. The CT3 performs like a high-end texture analyzer, but at a fraction of the cost. The CT3's easy-to-operate design will have your R&D and QC up and running in no time.
